June 2 and 3 at Lithia Artisans Market

Amy Godard is a local print artist, farmer, folk artist, and herbal body care specialist. A renaissance woman at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA).

Summer is just around the corner, it’s heating up this weekend. 44 total artists and crafty folk are showing over the course of this upcoming weekend. They’re forecasting upper 80’s for high temperatures this Saturday. Just across the walking bridge from the market is access to the creek to dip your feet in the water. There are a myriad of great reasons to come down to the market this weekend and peruse the wares.

SATURDAY 10-6  &  SUNDAY 11-5

The artist featured in the image above is folk artist Amy Godard. Amy wears many hats. She and her husband Eric run Upper Rogue Organic Farm. While he sells berries and spinach at the Farmers Market, she sells her art and craft at the Artisans Market. Amy makes block prints in limited editions. She also concocts herbal salves that help us heal, and makes puppets and ocarinas.  She always makes a positive statement while touching on slightly political themes. I always feel more connected to Mother Earth after I spend a little time with her art. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the garden lately and her art seems to inspire. Thanks Amy. Come see what she and 43 other artists have to offer this weekend at the Lithia Artisans Market.

This weekend you will find all sorts of well crafted, locally made items. Hand-cut stone jewelry, woodwork, leather work, clothing, fine art, photography, hand-made body care products, hats, sculpture, and much more await the market enthusiast. Meet the artist, listen to live music, eat at one of many restaurants along the alleyway, all the while supporting local.

Jeffri Carrington of the duo Accapellare sings for us regularly at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA). Sunday 11:30-1:30.
